I miss dancing, says Shilpa Shetty
Mumbai: Actress Shilpa Shetty, who gave industry some popular dance numbers like `Main Aayi Hoon UP Bihar Lootne`, `Shut Up and Bounce;, says she misses dancing.
Shilpa is judging the sixth season of celebrity dance reality show `Nach Baliye` along with director Sajid Khan and ace choreographer Terence Lewis.
"It feels like it (the show) has just got over.. But it is a new season with new contestants and a thinner version of me. It takes time to reduce weight after the baby. I miss dancing and miss being part of this whole madness. When I look at my child, I don`t miss it. So this works well as it is a TV show and it lets me connect with my fans," she said.
This season has an interesting line up of celebrity couples including comedian Raju and Shika Shrivastav, Raquesh Vashisht and Riddhi Dogra, Gurmeet Choudhary with Debina, Bruna Abdullah and Omar Farooquie, Ritwik Dhanjani and Asha Negi among others.
"This time we have got really interesting contestants.. Especially there is one guy named Vinod Thakur he is handicapped, doesn`t have both legs, but he is dancing. It made me feel more grateful to God. He has a great spirit and is very positive," Shilpa said.
"I am amazed.. I am looking forward to seeing them. We have people from different milieu like Raju Shrivastav who is hilarious; Kiku who has entertained us will also be seen dancing. Each one of them has a USP and there are interesting contestants this time," she said.
She is happy that her co-judges are the same.
"I am so happy that we all three are back. We respect each other?s opinion. It is great fun to be doing the show together again, Shilpa adds.
A year after giving birth to son Viaan, Shilpa lost a
lot of weight and got back her toned, fit self. In the show, this time she will be seen in traditional wear.
"Last time I wore both Indian and western attires but this time I am going completely Indian and will wear saris only. I want to do a take on wearing saris in different ways. People loved my look in the show, this shows how much people follow TV and what we are wearing etc," she said.
"I am here to entertain people and if my clothes entertain them I am more than happy. I have the same stylist Nandita," she added.
